Linen Pants

Linen is very absorbent so it’s a cool and fresh material to wear. It’s a great choice both for casual and formal wear.

Picking the Right Linen Pants

For formal wear the big and tall linen pants have drawstring stitched into it which make pants more rigid which is a good thing for large people with wide legs and it avoids pants from sagging or getting wrinkled during movement.

Formal linen pants a zipper front or button flaps. Sometimes there are also pleats in the formal linen pants. However, it’s better for big and tall men to avoid pleats and go for straight cut because then the bottom of their legs will look too narrow.

Casual linen pants don’t have drawstring so they are a bit looser and wrinkled. They use string knots instead of zipper or button flaps, so it’s not at all good for formal wear.
